Approval to Dump Treated Coal Ash Wastewater in James River


The State Water Control Board approved permits to allow Dominion Virginia Power to dump treated wastewater from coal ash pits into the James and Potomac Rivers today.

Speakers were also critical of Dominion’s plan to dump more than 255 million gallons of treated wastewater from coal ash ponds containing toxic chemicals like arsenic and selenium at the 85-year-old Bremo facility about 60 miles upstream of Richmond on the James River.
